, a pro gadhafi facebook page mentioned his running habits and a picture of ambassador stevens. the posting directed a threat against stevens. issa says stevens stopped his morning runs for about a week and then resumed them. in june, an ied was successfully placed at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, blowing a hole in the security perimeter gate, big enough for 40 people to go through. and in the weeks before the september 11th attacks, unarmed libyan guards working at the consulate were warned by family members to quit their jobs, because of, quote, rumors in the community of an impending attack. those are just a few of the 13 things that darrell issa listed. and he also included this major allegation. according to issa, multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that prior to the september 11th attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the mission in libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in washington. the state department has responded to darrell issa's letter. here is spokes
reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots. explosions have been heard as well. ambassador stevens, who is in benghazi and four personnel are in the compound safe haven. 50 minutes later, a second e-mail. embassy tripoli reports that the firing of the u.s. diplomatic mission has stopped. the compound has been cleared. a response team is on site attempting to locate com personnel. then at 6:07 p.m., a third e-mail. the subject line reads update to -- al sharia claims responsibility. embassy tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on facebook and twitter and has called for an attack on embassy tripoli. jay carney today took those e-mails and described them as open source unclassified e-mails. they also raised new questions as to why the white house waited eight kays days to label the ata terrorist attack. >> the independent accountability review board is hard at work reviewing everything. which i highly recommend as the inappropriate approach to something as complex as an attack like this. >> now, this is very important. clinton added and i want to quote her, posing somethin
that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others. more than three weeks after the september 11th terrorist attack. the fbi had chosen not to go to benghazi until now, due to security concerns, raise iing questions about the integrity of the investigation. right before the show, i spoke to michael birnbaum by phone. >> reporter: they looked around here a little more than an how areu and then had gone to a market in town to look for potentially stolen goods. >> you've been in the consulate. what did you find? >> reporter: i found a gutted and loot eed series of building. it's burned out. it's empty now. it's not being overrun bye-byestabye-by bystanders. they let me look around. there are documents scattered all around. there are documents in the bedroom where ambassador stevens was staying. there are lots of documents and files in what appears to have been the security office for the mission. and among those files are records, sensitive records of administrative files, personnel files of libyans working with the americans, records of security protocols for what to do in case of em
that killed ambassador stevens and three others and what he would do about the situation there. >> in libya, i'll support the libyan people's efforts to forge a lasting government that represents all of them. and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> eli lake has been out on the libya story from the beginning with what the u.s. knew. he joins us once again with increasing information on this. so, i want you to clear up something. you've been reporting today about the militia and some leaders of that militia in benghazi, who were allied with our mission there, but then said we're done with you because you don't like who we support for our new leadership. was that accurate? were they threatening to pull that work away and leave us less protected? >> that's based on the notes of september 11, 2012 cable that was approved by ambassador chris stevens on sort of the benghazi situation overall. it was one of the most interesting bullet points in the three page cable back to washington and i think it shows that in libya right n
public service including ambassador chris stevens. what lessons must we learn from that and how do we protect diplomats. that's the question, secretary clinton has ordered an investigation and review of the process led by one of the most respected people in washington, ambassador tom pickering and that process should not be politicized. that committee needs to take the time and the care -- what's happening is this entire process h has been politicized. we ought to put our emphasis on finding out what happened. i think that's where this debate should be. >> i want to talk about that point more in a moment. an interesting "new york times" headline today saying that the men the u.s. suspects being behind the attacks is literally snubbing the the u.s. and walking around without being questioned on the streets of libya right now. but earlier today, state department spokeswoman was asked if the state department was made aware of what the intelligence community knew within 24 hours of the attacks. that is, that extremists led the attack. of course in contrast to what susan rice said on the s
, september 11th was the attack in which ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed. officials say there was no unrest outside the compound malls prior to the attack. that is, of course, a contradiction to the initial version of events that we heard from the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. the new details come on the eve of a congressional hearing on capitol hill, which is looking into the so-called security failures, which preceded the attack in benghazi. but will politics get in the way of the investigation? this has become an incredibly political topic, and of course, it should not be. elijah cummings is the ranking member of the house committee on oversight and reform. he is outfront tonight. good to see you, sir. we appreciate your taking the time. obviously, there is this hearing tomorrow, but i would be remiss if i didn't start by asking you what the state department confirmed, saying there were no protests, no protests certainly about a video. they did say they didn't have any warning in advance of what happened there on september the 11th.
from tu nrk isa are being weed if turkey tonight in connection with the murders of chris stevens and three other americans. jill daugherty has been digging into the story and is with us tonight. >> well, on this particular incident, we don't know a whole lot of detail, but we know those two men, they are being questioned in turkey. and the understanding is that they were somehow allegedly tied to the attack in libya. which killed the ambassador. now, they were on the watch list that the u.s. compiled. that was given to the turks and the turks picked them up, apparently came into the country this week and the fbi is hoping they will have some type of access to them. >> questioned them already, but would like to have a chance to. >> right. >> there was also another development today in this investigation. this e-mail between the state department and the team benghazi surfaced. what do we know about that? >> well, this is part of, you know there are several investigations ongoing into the death of the ambassador and the three other americans. and how it happened. the charge is that
stated on september 12th, it was an act of terror. in the context of ambassador stevens and his security detail. that's why he was there. that's why he was praising both the courage and sacrifice of individuals in making clear it was an act of terror. >> how do you explain the actions of the administration then? for a full week after the attack when jay carney was asked about it on the 13th, he didn't use the word, terror. susan rice -- on the 17th, the spokeswoman asked if she regarded it as an act of terrorism, i don't think we know enough. then on september 25th on "the view" when the president was asked about it, he said there's no doubt the ongoing assault, that it wasn't just a mob action, which was still unclear. why what appears to be a real hesitancy to use the formal words? >> i think it was a recognition that this was an extraordinarily complicated situation in benghazi. it was difficult to get accurate information and what precise ly went on. in fact, that's why the president, actually, the secretary of state, calleded on ak bass dor thomas pickering to conduct a formal inqui
criticized for its response to the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. senator corker has been one of those demanding answers and he's "outfront" tonight. senator, good to see you again. you heard leon panetta giving a nuanced answer as to why he made the decisions that he made, and general ham made. does that answer satisfy you? >> well, there was some confusion. i know the folks we had in tripoli had to actually charter a civilian flight to get up to benghazi. they had to be led with a militia and a circuitous route that were anti-american to finally get to the benghazi consulate. so i actually am somewhat sympathetic to the military action. i'm totally unsympathetic to what the white house knew at that time. i know the white house knew in real-time this was a terrorist attack. and i just am very disappointed at the continual misleading and the fact that the administration has used this as a -- they have turned it into a political issue by doing what they did. >> now, let me ask you, because secretary of state hillary clinton, as you know, has said it
